Cubs shortstop Javier Bàez came through with a walk-off knock on Monday against long-time Reds nemesis Amir Garrett and, well, he really let Garrett know about it on his way to first base.
Before the pitch, the two could be seen jawing at each other. There's history and we'll get to that.
The news right now is that Bàez has avoided suspension but has been fined an undisclosed amount of money by the league, reports Jon Heyman of MLB Network.
The history between these two goes back to 2017, when Bàez hit a grand slam against Garrett. In 2018, Garrett struck Bàez out and went nuts and Bàez didn't like it. The benches cleared.
